Title: Waiting for Godot
Author: Beckett, Samuel
Price: $24.95

'Nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes, it's awful.' This line, from the play, was adopted by Jean Anouilh, to characterize the first production of \"Waiting For Godot\" at the Theatre de Babylone, in 1953. He went on to predict that the play would, in time, represent the most important premiere to be staged in Paris for forty years. Nobody acquainted with Beckett's masterly black comedy would now question this prescient recognition of a classic of twentieth-century literature.

'Go and see Waiting Gotot. At the worst you will discover a curiosity, a four-leaved closer, a black tulip; at the best, soemthing that will securely lodge in a corner of your mind for as long as you live.' - Harold Hobson, Sunday Times, 1955

'I told him [Sir Ralph Richardson] that if by Godot I had meant God I would have said God, and not Godot. This seemed to disappoint him greatly.' Samuel Beckett, 1955

ESTRAGON: We always find something, eh, Didi, to give us the impression we exist?

VLADIMIR (impatiently): Yes, yes, we're magicians.
